****THIS GIVEAWAY IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING ENTRIES****
Scroll down to see who won!
This week’s giveaway is brought to you by HomeTalk, an online community where homeowners, renters, and contractors alike come together to talk about all things home improvement. Whether you’re in the middle of a bathroom reno, thinking about installing your own flooring, tackling a DIY project for the first time, or wondering why your new plant is dying, HomeTalk is a great place to go.
As a member of HomeTalk (membership is free), you can search for project inspiration, ask questions (and, more importantly, get answers!) about your home improvement and gardening projects, share photos of what’s going on in your home, and even read reviews of contractors and retailers in your area. Think of it as a non-drama version of Facebook for DIYers. Genius.
Aside from being completely free, one of our favorite things on HomeTalk is the “Local Talk” feature. Just enter your zip code and HomeTalk filters all of the “talk” to your area. So, for us, HomeTalk becomes Richmond Talk. This is especially handy when you’re looking for contractors or discussions about things that are specific to the climate, plants, etc. in your area.
This week, HomeTalk will be giving one of our lucky readers a $100 Pottery Barn Gift Card! I know, right?! Pottery Barn being one of Ash’s go-to places for accessories and such, so we’re really excited about this giveaway for you!
UPDATE! The awesome people at HomeTalk said if we collect over 500 giveaway entries, they will up the prize to a $150 Pottery Barn Gift Card!! So get clickin’ and share the giveaway on your Facebook page, Twitter, Google+, etc. Tell your friends, family, your pool guy, the UPS guy, the man that lives across the street… you get the picture.
